ROYAL GALA 2016 - A Benefit for YWCA Harbour House Emergency Shelter
This year marks the 19th Annual Royal Gala in support of YWCA Harbour House. Since its inception, the Gala has raised over $625,400 in support of YWCA Harbour House. Our goal this year is to raise an additional $75,000.
YWCA Harbour House is a 24-hour, 24-bed emergency shelter for women and children who are involved in abusive intimate partner relationships. The money raised at the Gala supports the YWCA's ongoing programming provided to the women and children in need, including education sessions, counselling, starting over programs, a 24-hour crisis hotline, and more.
Last year, YWCA Harbour House served 535 women and children in their residences, however 1,948 women and children in need were turned away due to lack of resources. Let's change that this year.
